Story: Recurrence starts as Pipa (Lopilato) is trying to live a remote life after her police career fell apart. She is living in North Argentina with her family. When a corpse is discovered, Pipa gets turned to help investigate what happened.
As Pipa starts looking deeper into the case, she finds a bigger problem going on within the area. A deadly case that will start coming close to home.
Verdict on Recurrence
Recurrence is a sequel to ‘Perdida’ that brings Pipa back into the spotlight to solve a new crime. This attempted new quiet life will take a turn when the case becomes personal. It shows the different backgrounds clashing, with the racial tension within the area.
This story feels like many other detectives thrown into a new area, needing to step up and tackle a new crime. It has twists along the way as we are left to search for the truth about what happened. We get left with plenty of corruption going on, as well as bringing us a strong cop figure that does fight for the right thing.
Where to Watch: Recurrence is available on Netflix
Final Thoughts – Recurrence is a mystery-filled thriller that keeps us guessing.
